Writing Celebrations

All of our units end with a writing celebration. Students go through the publishing process and then get the opportunity to celebrate their hard work from the unit by sharing their writing with others. Students are taught that their writing is not solely for the teacher, but it should be for an authentic audience! There are many ways to celebrate student writing. Here are a few examples of writing celebrations:

  • Reading your writing with a buddy class

  • Inviting families in for a writing celebration

  • Displaying published pieces in the school library

  • Creating a video of students reading their published pieces

  • Reading poetry at a local coffee shop or bookstore

  • Having a museum walk where students walk around the room reading each other's writing and leaving a compliment on a sticky note for the author

Here are some pictures from Mr. Terry's Writing Celebration at Glacier Edge.
